Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Charming & comfortable Western-themed cottage on a 5-acre ranch located on the 1200+ acre Tryon Ranch, yet within 3-minute walk to Angels Creek and the historic Gold Rush town of Angels Camp - the 'base camp' for Sierra Mountain sports.

Enjoy cocktails or meals on the private shady patio with optional canopy. Cook in the fully equipped kitchen, or enjoy one of the area's many fine restaurants.

The cottage features a king bed (which can be divided into 2 twins) with separate entrance; shower bath plus additional dressing room with sink vanity; and queen-size sofa bed in the living room. A gas-fired country stove provides ambiance while cottage has a full air-conditioning and heating system.

Angels Camp is becoming known as the 'base camp' for Sierra Mountain Sports. Within a 2-hour drive, you can visit Lake Tahoe to the north or Yosemite National Park to the south, or the many fine attractions in the High Sierra. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Gold Country as it is central to shopping, dining, wine-tasting, and outdoor sports almost too numerous to mention.

About Anne and Bob

I bought Littlewood Ranch in late 2002 when I retired from a career in journalism and international public relations. Since I was a teenager in Southern California, I've enjoyed horses and ranching. Now I can tend fences, help neighboring ranchers round-up and brand cattle, and 'ride the range'. The main house (our home) is a 1950s style ranch house and is about 200 feet from The Cottage, yet separated by nearly 60 trees that provide an ever-changing landscape depending on the season.

Anne and Bob purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Anne and Bob chose Gold Country / High Sierra

The Cottage on Littlewood Ranch is just 200 feet from the main house on the ranch. We've used it for years as a guest cottage for our friends and family visiting the area. Now we're offering it to visitors who want to enjoy all that Angels Camp and the Gold Country have to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, wonderful views, working ranch, proximity to main roads, proximity to restaurants, movies, museums, wine tasting rooms and wineries, and numerous outdoor activities for all ages, abilities and interests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great rustic experience to be in Angels Camp over the holdiays. We really appreciated the WiFi coverage so we could get up and work early in the morning and then play and enjoy the rest of the day - and evening. The cottage is warm and cosy and we love the little gas-heated stove to take the chill off. We walked to town for coffee and lunch and loved being with the horses, and of course Molly.



Thanks for a great week!

The perfect place once again !

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our second stay at the cottage at Littlewood. Last year we were here for Christmas. Good fun ! This year we picked the fall. Everything about this place is just as it is advertised. It instantly feels like a cozy home away from home when you walk in the door. Anne and Bob are so kind and they are helpful if you need anything. We enjoy going up to Calaveras Big Trees State Park to walk in the giant sequoia groves. Also Murphys is close by for some great restaurants and little shops and wineries. But mostly , as seniors, we enjoy sitting on the back porch bench and watching the sun go down over the sweet old town of Angels Camp.

So peaceful...

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to have a calm and relaxing anniversary and this little cottage was perfect for that. We would have liked more time there but unfortunately... work life. Our little one enjoyed the play structure, meeting the horses and playing with sticks and dirt :)

We got to meet Bob, who was very nice and helpful. definitely referring this place to family. Also, we got to see a deer roam around nearby on our last day so that was a bonus.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect place for a get away. The location is close enough to Main Street that you can walk to shops and dining. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio listening to nature. We look forward to our next stay here!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a concert with a group of four and were very comfortable in this home. It was also really nice to see the horses in the morning while drinking your coffee, really made me feel like I was at home. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Wonderful location, and The Cottage provided everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed The Cottage very much. We have two little kids that were happy to play on the play-structure next to the house and were mesmerized by the horses. The place was equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, and to prepare food. The location is very convenient, close to the city center, and to many attractions. We loved our stay here, and the kids are already missing the horses and asking about when we can go again.

Thank you!
